    No worries to anyone who thinks he's in danger....no cars in sight!!!;) This wasn't even planned actually. His daddy put him down & I was chatting with the mom & I looked over & said...oh wait..I gotta catch this shot:) I've ALWAYS got my eyes peeled for what can happen next!!!!:)

This is awesome Alisha! It has a lot of tension to it. The fear that a car will come over the road. I know you knew they weren't coming, but as a viewer, I feel nervous. I think that it works well. I have a hard time looking away because I want to make sure baby is alright. I've never seen anything like it.....and I LOVE IT! See ya in the winner's circle.

Acck!! This one makes me so nervous!!! I looked at all of this session on your site the other day, and they were all fantastic. I LOVED the ones of them in the field, and the one of all three of them in color in the field totally rocks!!!

This is too cute!! Great idea!

Ok I had to come back just to say I am completely shocked! I really thought this little button was going to turn gold. Would you believe I woke up thinking about this one and it hit me I didn't see it in the winner's circle. This is one of those shots you just don't forget. So well done Alisha!!
